Hi Ted, I just found your lupus cures on earthclinic.com. Wow! you are so kind to answer'so many questions! I was diagnosed with Lupus SLE and was put on Plaquenil and Arthrotec for pain. I had so many complications and allergic reactions to the treatment. I cannot even explain how hard it was. My son was 3 1/2 at the time and I was in so much pain and using a wheel chair. I was scared and so tired and depressed. A friend told me about Dr. Mercola in Chicago www.mercola.com

Dr. Mercola gave me a dietary plan _ after testing my nutritional type, I am protein type so I should consume more protein, some vegetables little carbs in the form of vegetables and no sugars, no grains especially corn, no wheat and in my case I am also rice intolerant. Everything needs to be organic or pesticide free, grass fed beef, etc. I have to admit that his program made great improvement on my health and I even lost a lot the weight gained by the allergy shots I was given while taking Plaquenil.

However, the diet I need to follow is expensive and hard to do when I travel or when I don't feel like cooking as every meal need to be planned ahead, fresh and organic. I am thankful for Dr. Mercola and even though I try to follow his treatment the best I can I am very interested in your methods. I stopped my diet for a few months and I am feeling aches and pains and fatigue. No rushes just pain in my back and joints and a cold I cannot get rid of.

So, you mentioned beef is not good for lupus patients but Dr Mercola told me to eat grass fed beef, that it was even better than fish for me (?)

I drink a lot of whey protein for breakfast almost everyday. Is that OK? Should I cut it off?

Where do I buy borax? I went to Whole foods and they asked me if I meant the detergent? They don't sell any supplement called borax....yes I probably sound dumb! but I am new at all this. I was born in South America and have MD's in the family :) this whole natural approach (which I believe in) is all so new to me. I have to say America is great for their technology but their medical system sucks and Drs only care about the big money they make and don't let me start with pharm companies...

Also the baking soda in water.... should I add 3%H2O2, apple cider vinegar or lime juice to it? I am confused!

You also mentioned RNA/DNA? Vitamin B12? Chlorella.....

I thank you in advanced for your answer. I also thank you for posting your findings and for caring enough to share these with the world. Thank you so much!

The lupus issue is due usually a mycoplasma problem, which is a fungus like organism, and in some cases nanoinsects issue, as evidenced by some people who reported them during the initial stages of the SLE. It is the nanoinsects being the carriers the aggressive mycoplasma continues to cause inflammation and pain, especially around the joints. Most of the flare ups in pain comes mostly from acid forming food, so certain proteins can cause the flare ups, such as steak, but also cured meats, and processed foods. I don't also classify people by what diet they should eat because each foods or diets I consider them as nutrients and also are used to treat the conditions needed to reduce the symptoms instead of being born into that diet. The protein I used as a source, is often whole chicken and fish, being the safest. So my approach are somewhat different from Dr. Mercola. The lupus issue require a four point plan: One is to avoid certain foods that causes flare up for those who do have lupus. This includes aspartame, tap water, sugar, corn syrup, glucose, steaks, margarine, vegetable oils used in cooking, processed foods, white flour, and white bread. Second is alkalize. This involves alkalizing. Alkalizing will removes much of the redness and inflammation, but some of the pain. The simplest possible remedy is 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. That's the simplest one. But the more effective remedy I found out is to add H2O2 3%, which is often 10 drops of 3% H2O2 plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda taken twice a day. The most effective remedy, if I can get washing soda (sodium carbonate usually Arm & Hammer) is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of sodium carbonate in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. The sodium carbonate and baking soda is often called a carbicarb remedy, but I have modified as a simpler home remedy. This last one is most effective in reducing redness that and inflammation being more complete. Third is to kill off the Nanoinsect. This is the borax remedy. The borax remedy is what killed the organism that is causing a constant problem of pain and pus in some cases. For a woman's dose may require about 1/8 teaspoon of borax plus 30 drops of food grade H2O2 3% in one liter of drinking water taken throughout the day, usually five days out of a week. The fourth and last one is to reduce heavy metals, which requires chlorella and spurilina once every two day or once every other day, the dose is quite often 250-500 mg. Removal of heavy metals is required since most mycoplasma (also found in many vaccines) tend to cause the body to accumulate more heavy metals.' There is another addition that may help lupus, which is artemisia, or wormwood, which also chelates metals and also kills off certain mycoplasma too that might help. SLE is somewhat infectious, but not contagious, but I have seen entire family who do have lupus, so there is some communicable nature, but it is not nearly as contagious as a cold virus. Generally speaking, some other supplements are in order to reduce pain too which includes magnesium gluconate 250-500 mg, vitamin D3, RNA/DNA, vitamin E, and vitamin B complex, and especially zinc gluconate 50 mg, that can further help recovery of the condition, but as I have found out, it is always the baking soda, borax, chelation, and H2O2, that will see most of the improvements. The plaquenil may cause eye problem and generally speaking the taking of those should be reduced if the body's condition is improving as it causes other problems too. In my personal opinion, plaquenil might be substituted with artemisia or artemisin, or worm wood, because both plaquenil and artemisia were used to treat malaria, but I think the mycoplasma we are dealing with here might be respond similarly somewhat with the lupus, since I am somewhat suspicious with medical drugs. It is the side effects that killed the patients in most pharma drugs. The borax I used I get from chemical supply store, usually food grade, but if I can't get them, I might get them from 20 mule team borax, and other detergents that clearly label as 100% borax. P.S. Whey protein, B12, chlorella, and others you mentioned are part of the SLE remedy, especially the chlorella and B12. However whey are generally taken only during breakfast and light meals or eating an early dinner are important. Eating late dinner lowers the immune system. By early dinner, it is around 4.00 - 5.00 p.m.
